Information from the CQC reveals two services in West Sussex have received ratings from the start of January.

Beachview was awarded an 'inadequate' rating after an inspection on April 20. The rating was published on January 4.

On January 11, St Annes Residential Care Home was judged to be needing improvement. The care home had last been inspected on November 21.

Services scored as 'inadequate' will generally be put under special measures by the CQC, and will likely undergo further inspections. 'Requires improvement' is less serious, but still means the service is not meeting expectations.

Well-performing organisations will instead be given a 'good' or 'outstanding' rating.
